W hatis CIT?
CIT, Collagen Induction Therapy is an anti-wrinkle, anti-aging or anti-blemish treatment with little down time and extraordinary results.
Also called der mal penning, it is natural skin rejuvenation resulting in increased production of collagen type III. New skin tissue is created below the surface, smoothing and tightening the targeted area. The result is smooth er, more even toned skin. It even reduces the appearance of“smokers” lines around the mouth. With CIT, laugh lines are softened and surface imperfections are corrected. CIT promotes collagen without com promising the integrity of the surface. The pen can penetrate the skin anywhere on the body& can be used for a wide range of therapies.
The object of CIT is to build connect ive tissue in the skin layers while keeping intact the protective outer layer. Topical anesthetic is applied and a handheld device with a tip of small needle clusters is used to penetrate into the skin, break up old collagen strands, and stimulate the production ofelastin fibers.
During the collagen induction process, the device penetrates through the epidermis but does not remove it. Since the epidermis is only punctured, it heals rapidly. The patient can immediately return to normal activity. Once the entry ways are created, targeted customized serums are introduced to achieve the desired results. A collagen production cycle takes up to 12 weeks thus, gradual improvement continues for 3 months.
CIT results are more dramatic when they are done in a series. When doing a series, patients plan to have 3 treatments, each about 4 weeks apart. The results are permanent but aging isa process that can not be stopped. Touch-up treatments extend the results of the series and should be planned for every 8-12 m on ths.
